Former Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin has called for Gov. Mitt Romney to release his tax returns, as well as the data that could substantiate his claim of having created 100,000 jobs as CEO of Bain Capital.
Romney has resisted releasing his tax returns, and his campaign has thus far refused to provide the hard proof to back up his claims about Bain.
Governor Romney has claimed to have created 100,000 jobs at Bain, and people are wanting to know: is there proof? Palin told Sean Hannity on Fox News.
Rick Tyler, former Gingrich aide and head of Newt Gingrichs Super PAC, has already accused Romney of having created those 100,000 jobs in Asia and Mexico. Earlier this week, Big Government pointed out that Romneys claim to have created 100,000 jobs contrasts with claims he made during his 1994 U.S. Senate campaign, when he claimed to have created 10,000 jobs at Bain. Romney retired from Bain Capital in 1999.
Palin said that Romney needed to come clean about his record, given the likelihood that Democrats would probe the tax issue and Romneys tenure at Bain if he were to become the Republican nominee.
The former Alaska governor also told Hannity that she did not think it was inevitable that Romney would become the Republican nominee.
The majority has not yet coalesced around one, she said, adding that conservatives were still searching for the right free market, pro-military candidate to back.
Why is he hiding his tax returns?
Dear Lord, Romney and Gekko look like carbon copies. The Dems will run Mittney so far into the ground he won’t know which way is up.
“Sarah Palin has called for Gov. Mitt Romney to release his tax returns, as well as the data that could substantiate his claim of having created 100,000 jobs as CEO of Bain Capital. “
LOL That will be something akin to requesting hussein to release a real birth certificate and student records.
John Bolton endorsed McCain in 2008. Bolton supports homosexuals in the military. So does Romney.
Then you're an idiot.
Sic ‘im, Sarah...
Yes!!!!!!!! I’ve been saying this for days now....!!!!!!!!
I could just hug you for that one, Governor...you made my day.
you go girl!
saved or created “x” number of jobs...
HOW DARE YOU IMPUGN GORDON’S INTEGRITY!! /s
Romney CONVENIENTLY destroyed the hard drives
from his governorship (where he ruined Massachusetts
and installed DNC judges over and over).
Romney always lies. Like that he “marched”
Romney is a sociopathic liar.
"As U.S. real output grew 13 percent between 2002 and 2006, Massachusetts trailed at 9 percent.
* Manufacturing employment fell 7 percent nationwide those years, but sank 14 percent under Romney, placing Massachusetts 48th among the states.
* Between fall 2003 and autumn 2006, U.S. job growth averaged 5.4 percent, nearly three times Massachusetts' anemic 1.9 percent pace.
* While 8 million Americans over age 16 found work between 2002 and 2006, the number of employed Massachusetts residents actually declined by 8,500 during those years.
"Massachusetts was the only state to have failed to post any gain in its pool of employed residents," professors Sum and McLaughlin concluded.
In an April 2003 meeting with the Massachusetts congressional delegation in Washington, Romney failed to endorse President Bush's $726 billion tax-cut proposal."

I wonder what it’s like to be a former conservative talk radio host who is now reduced to spreading liberalism over the airwaves.
Does an individual in this circumstance have any amount of free will remaining?
I used to have high hopes for Palin. No longer. She should have finished her term as governor and then run for another office. Now, you can forget it. And if we end up with four more years of Obummer, ehhhh, no big deal - right, Sarah? Very disappointing.
Nonsense. Rush will do whatever is good for Rush. He just signed a huge contract with Premier in 2008.
Premier syndicates George Noory, Glen Beck, Hannity....
....and Randi Rhodes and Dr Dean Edell...total lefties.
You think those two are being told to hold their fire on Romney? Nonsense.
If they tried to tell Rush what to do, he'd grab their balls, and rake them over hot microphones and not let go for a week.
Rush has an empire of backchannel connections that could make Romeney a dead issue in a week if he wanted to.
Well I guess Sarah is following Todds lead, but just not coming out and saying it. Eye of Newt is her man.
If Romney wins this, please write Sarah and ask her to start a 3rd party candidacy.
